Hello world! It has been a while hasn’t it since I have blogged and I have no excuses except that my poor time-managment has left me with things piling up on me. Not a fun feeling. however, I really wanted to share a few of my favourite beauty products of 2016 with you guys. Please let me know what you think of it!

Neutrogena Deep Clean Oil to Foam Cleanser (original) 

I have been using this cleanser for a good 4 months (around), it is my go to cleanser because of how moist my skin feels after using it. As I wear BB cream and waterproof mascara daily, I really wanted a cleanser that could both cleanse and remove my makeup easily. This did just the trick! You can apply the cleanser on dry skin and massage off the makeup or you could use it as a regular cleanser and with the bubbles formed, massage the makeup off, either way my skin is moist and clean after using it. Highly recommend!

Cliv Tomato Calluss and Vita C Mask 

Believe me when I say, I have tried many types of sheet masks, however, I have found that this is the mask that I have found to be ultra hydrating, instantly brightening and soothing on the skin. Whenever I get the chance, or whenever I think my skin needs a pick me up, it is my ultimate go to mask. Use it at night before bed, remove the mask and see how bright your skin gets… wake up and your skin is dewy and bright!

St. Ives Apricot scrub

This year I have been through about 2 or 3 of these scrubs, not only do I use this on my face but on areas of my body where I think it needs a little more TLC. It is definitely one of the scrubs that offers a deeper exfoliation, smoothing out any imperfections, so once or twice a week is more than enough!

The Body Shop Oils of Life Sleeping Mask 

The most soothing, hydrating, rich (but non-sticky) sleeping mask I have ever used. Everyone I have recommended it to has fallen in love with it. Leave it on at night and wake up with supple and plump skin. One word… amazing.

Soapberry Fo-Ti Shampoo 

The ultimate natural remedy to detoxing your scalp, my hair always feels refreshed after using it and if you get hormonal dandruff or the occasional dandruff, this would be ideal for you!

Borghese Green Clay Mask 

An amazing product for detoxing the skin, it strips away the dirt and impurities without stripping away your natural oils. Easily accessible and really effective on the skin, a must try for mask lovers!

Crest 3D White brilliance toothpaste (Any drugstore- mannings)

Having discovered this hidden diamond late last year I have been religiously using it daily and have found my teeth whiter that it has ever been! And before you cringe about the possibility of having sensitive teeth… I didn’t have any sensitivity on my teeth at all (this might differ from person to person so bear this in mind.)

The Line 3D & 4D Mascara by Missha 

Having previously loved the Benefit tinted eyelash mascara and the Revlon Dramatic definition, I decided to try something new for a change. The cute designs drew me and the affordable price (HKD $45) and after trying the 3D and 4D mascara I was hooked. Since then, I have purchased two more. They give you effortlessly natural lashes and holds the lashes fairly well.

Shiseido Future solution LX eye contour 

This is by far the creamiest eye cream I have ever used, its rich, instantly brightens your under-eyes and plumping. What more could you want!

    Hi, Firstly don’t worry that you not been for a while because your very talented reviews are best to wait for its quality over quantity I find. Back to your reviews about the cleanser,face mask and toothpaste, I’ve been using the Avon black cleanser and was getting on ok with it well for only £3 I wouldn’t mind if it was crap but I hate to say it my skin much smoother and less dry but my Avon lady has left and have you got any idea if the facial products you have tried and tested help reduce those dreaded large open pores and black heads,for my body I’m using sanctuary and swear by it but can I use it on my face .im 45yrs young and spend an hour each night and morning cleansing,exfoliating ,toning then serum then my current moisturiser the day one has spf15,but I cannot get rid or reduce these dreaded pores and blackheads I even use nasel strips 2 times a week along with clay masks,in fact I spend more hours of my day on my face lol what with makeup also,because I’m physically disabled I like my face to be on show and that makes me feel really good. The toothpaste you tried sounds fab,but I managed to bag the new oral B complete care and whitening for only £2 from morissons this morning and I let you know how it goes,but pretty please any advice for the above skin probs grately received thanks I look forward to hearing from you soon xxx

    Many thanks x
